Marbella has been recognised by Conde Nast Traveller Publication as one of the most beautiful towns in Spain.
And of course, we agree whole-heartedly.
With 320+ days of sunshine each year it is certainly blessed with glorious weather, there are 70+ golf courses located across the coast, golden beaches and top-class beach clubs, plus a selection of michelin-starred restaurants.
The article describes “Marbella, on Andalusia’s Costa del Sol, is (in)famous for mega-yachts, supercars, and as a summer hangout for Europe’s aristocracy. But venture a little bit outside of the main tourist strip, and it becomes a whole new town. The labyrinthine Old Town swirls around the central Plaza de los Naranjos, a square named for the orange trees that outline it. On the Avenida del Mar, walk through a collection of sculptures by Salvador Dalí, nonchalantly on on display to the public, and follow the seaside promenade all the way to the neighboring town of San Pedro de Alcántara. That’s the real Marbella—not the glitz and glamor that makes headlines.”
And Marbella doesn’t have to be as expensive as you think. It’s possible to live in one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods of Elviria, from only 189,900€ with a beautiful apartment – surrounded by golf. It’s proximity to the acclaimed Nikki Beach should also not be overlooked. Visit TheRetreatMarbella.com for more information.
Málaga is also included within this fine collection of Spanish towns citing Picasso’s home as a cultural hotspot. Cervantes Theatre, flamenco and the beaches are listest amongst the top-see attractions.
